Plymouth manager Derek Adams refused to comment on former Argyle striker Reuben Reid joining rivals Exeter, ahead of this weekend’s Devon derby.

The 28-year-old’s contract at Home Park was up at the end of last season, and after he refused a new deal, he was free to leave the the side he joined in 2013.

After discussions with a variety of clubs, on Tuesday it was confirmed that Exeter would be his new destination, but Adams doesn’t want to comment on the controversial move.

He said: “They [Exeter] have made a new signing, but they have made a number of new signings over the summer.

“That just adds competition for places for them.”

Reid, who has played for Yeovil, West Brom, Brentford and Rotherham in the past, has a superb record in the Devon derby, and in 2015, scored the first hat-trick in the fixture since 1929.

He adds much needed firepower to Paul Tisdale’s injury-hit squad, but Saturday’s derby could come too soon for Reid, who’s move has provided much debate between rival fans.

But Adams stood firm and said: “I haven’t commented on any of the players that left the football club over the summer, and I’m not going to start now just in front of a Devon derby.”

“We look at Plymouth Argyle Football Club. From my point of view, it’s about looking after our own interests.”
